New Experiences, Courtesy of WMU

| WMU

This past weekend, I got to represent the WMU Women’s Rugby team in Washington D.C. at the Ruggerfest tournament! It was a great experience and a LOT of fun. I’m definitely a little sore and sunburnt at the moment, but it was well worth it. We got to play three games, against George Mason University, Catholic…

Sick Days

| WMU

Now, I don’t know about you, but when I get sick–even if it’s just a little cold, I turn into a complete overly dramatic baby. I act like the world is ending and I’m on my death bed. My friends quickly learned this about me, and now tell me as soon as I mention that…

Getting my hands dirty in Graphic and Printing Sciences

| WMU

I consider myself to be a lucky college student in that I really, really love my major. The best part of college is that you’re finally picking what YOU want to study and take classes in and pursue a career that you really like, but unfortunately people still pick majors for the wrong reasons, like…

Staged Reading! This Friday!

| WMU

Hi, Broncos? Are you bored on your Friday afternoons? Have nothing to do? Falling into the Friday slump? Well, look no further for your Friday entertainment! This Friday at 2pm in the Gilmore Theatre Complex is an event that has never happened before. Something so daring, so brave, so provocative I might say, it might…

Spring at WMU

| WMU

Spring is a magical season! It is a time where that nasty snow and ice finally melt off of our paths, and the sun peeks out every day. Flowers and trees start to bloom here on campus and it starts to look beautiful! Ask any WMU student and they will all have their list of…

ASB Follow-up!

| WMU

Why hello again, prospective Broncos! Sorry it’s been a while, I’ve been a bit under the weather lately. Anyway, I had to share some of my experiences of Alternative Spring Break with you all, since I’ve been hyping it up in my previous posts. As a quick refresher, I went with a group of WMU students…

NCAA

| WMU

I would have to say that although this year I will be closing my chapter as a undergraduate, the multiple success stories that Western has had this year have made it extremely special. I have been at WMU all four years, and never has our men’s basketball team made it to the NCAA! But this year they did.…

Rain Rain Go Away, For Real This Time

| WMU

Lately I have noticed that is starting to rain. Sure, as the warm weather approaches we need to have growth in the vegetation, but I say rain get out of here! It is still winter, and though it’s not winter for long, It is still rather cold out. When it rains, and the ground becomes…

Beauty everywhere!

| WMU

There are many different reasons to come to Western, first and foremost being, an education. The sky’s the limit for you with our 141 majors for undergraduates. Study anything your heart desires, with the guarantee of a strong support system, and the best of the best helping you master your craft. The second reason is…

College Spring Break trips

| WMU

When it comes to spring break in college, we romanticize what that really means. Everyone wants a beachfront condo packed with all of your closest friends, and fun trips to amusement parks to boot. The reality, unfortunately, is that many of us cannot afford such luxuries. While extravagant trips to the islands may be out…

KING STAG: An Excuse to Play with Puppets

| WMU

Hello, Broncos! I am here to shamelessly plug the next show I will be in: King Stag! It is a whimsical fairy tale about the land of Serendippo, where King Deramo is searching for his wife. The evil adviser Tartaglia stands in his way as animals and humans intermingle in a beautiful story where good…

How to Battle the Cold

| WMU

Hello, my frigid Broncos! Many of you lucky ones are on a Spring Break vacation to somewhere tropical — sandy beaches, warm sun, I’m going to hate all of you for coming back with a beautiful tan. But for a few of us, we are still here in snowy, cold Kalamazoo. As I walked to…

Spring Break 2014- Living the Good Life?

| WMU

Like every other college kid my age, Western student or not, spring break couldn’t have come quick enough for me. This coming week is WMU’s spring break and needless to say, my classmates and I are ecstatic. Last year I took part in Alternative Spring Break at WMU where I got to volunteer in Saint…

Happy (belated) Western Wednesday!

| WMU

I know it’s not Wednesday, but I just really have a ton of built of Bronco pride that I need to let out. Today I wore a WMU shirt and felt so proud walking around Buenos Aires representing Western Michigan University. Here I am in front of a famous tower in the center of the city…

Midterm Myths

| WMU

Hey, aspiring Broncos! In order to get to the glory that is Spring Break, a whole week off of class, sans-homework, in Philadelphia with ASB (SEE EARLIER POST!), I have to get through this dreary week of midterm exams. The upside is that this is our halfway mark for the semester, and we’re *this close*…
